Do you suspect that your poker skill is insufficiently well rewarded?Do you wonder how the professionals always get the money?Would you like to know how top players study and refine their game? If you have ambitions to join the ranks of the consistently winning players, this book will help you plan your campaign. Poker is a strange and fascinating game.

In this book he identifies precisely how this can be achieved and shows how much of the battle actually needs to be conducted away from the table. If you already play a fair game of poker but want to become one of the very few players who consistently “play well”, then you need this book. The concepts discussed in this book are brought into clear focus on the accompanying 180 minute CD of videos where the author can be seen explaining his decision-making process. Here is an extract:

One of the most daunting moments in a poker player's career occurs when he realizes his knowledge of how to play a specific hand well is incomplete without the additional understanding of how to play every other hand in his range well. This task would be impossible if a player had to actually think about every other hand in his range, but by understanding theoretical sound poker, he can quickly design balanced ranges using the proper bet-sizing while playing.Applications of No-Limit Hold 'em teaches theoretical sound poker, and thus the ability to create the bet-sizings and ranges which will beat the better players. The theory in this book is not designed to be complex or abstract, but rather it's intended to be applied immediately producing better overall results.Many confusing concepts such as overbetting, balancing multiple bet-sizing ranges, donk betting, and check-raising as the preflop raiser are crucial to a player's strategy despite few players implementing them or talking about them. And after reading this book, you should be able to not only conceptually understand these ideas, but also know how to begin incorporating them into your game, and thereby successfully compete against tough opponents.
